Beyond Rodeph Sholom School

High School Placement

Starting in 7th Grade, students and their parents are guided by a team of internal experts, including Delvida Sene, Director of High School Placement, through a student-centric process of finding the right fit high school program. This process which allows our students, at the crucial moment of adolescence, to grow agency, self-advocacy, and independence that prepares them for academic and professional life beyond their time at our school.

This process, and the rest of their Rodeph Sholom School experience, enables our graduates to attend some of the finest independent and public schools in the New York City area. We take great pride in our ability to prepare our students for the academic and social challenges of high school, and make every effort to ensure that they are placed in schools where they will continue to grow and flourish.
